ASUS ROG Strix Scar II (GL704GV) Unboxing, Hands-On

Technology
The new ASUS ROG Strix Scar II with NVIDIA RTX was announced during CES 2019 last month and just landed in the Philippines a few days ago. Fortunately, we got the chance to hold this bad boy so here is my unboxing and hands-on. Let’s start! First off is its box design that shouts “Gaming laptop here!” which is pretty cool especially when you want to brag about it to your friends the first time you buy this laptop. Make sure you’re in a safe area though, as people might try to rob you given its eye-catching aesthetics. Opening the box will show the unit, charger, a free ASUS ROG Impact mouse, manuals, and the cool ROG Eye sculpture that you can erect into a 3D model. The free mouse comes with an RGB eye logo that you can adjust via the ASUS Aura Sync. There are fou...

ASUS ZenPower Pro PD: The best power bank right now?

Technology
With all the smartphones and gadgets that exist in peoples’ pockets and bags nowadays, an argument can be made that one particular accessory is ubiquitous nowadays — of course, I’m referring to power banks. I’m sure many of you have the same experience, but I’ve personally owned several of them over the last few years. But when ASUS sent us the new ZenPower Pro PD, it had a different vibe to it. Awesome design, portable POWER On paper, it’s promising. 13,600mAh, and a very simple selection of a USB-A and USB-C port. The latter of which supports two-way charging and both ports can be used to charge two devices simultaneously. The “PD” in the name obviously stands for “power delivery”. Smartphone, tablet, Nintendo Switch, even my l

Technology
ASUS ROG’s Zephyrus line takes thin-and-light gaming laptops to a different level thanks to their low profile and functional design while keeping power. Today, we’re taking a look at the smallest of the bunch, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus S (GX531). It’s panning out to be an ultimate staple for gaming on-the-go, so let’s see if it holds up to that reputation. The unit used for this review is the 2018 model with a GTX 1060, not one of the RTX-powered ones recently launched at CES 2019. Design and Construction At first glance, it’s what you expect from a Zephyrus. It’s thin, it’s stealthy, and if it’s your first time seeing one, it’s jarring. Most people would be confused at the sight of the keyboard’s position, but that’s okay. We&
